Apply to be a part of the CT Governor’s Innovation Fellowship

Are you interested in earning a $5K stipend, help with finding employment, participating in unique professional development, and networking opportunities? Apply to be a part of the CT Governor’s Innovation Fellowship!

The Governor’s Innovation Fellowship (GIF) offers ambitious, high-achieving recent graduates the opportunity to work at leading, forward-thinking businesses in Connecticut – advancing their careers while collaborating with a community of Fellows. The goal is to create opportunities for Fellows to develop both personally and professionally, while building a cohort of talent, camaraderie, and growth within our state.

Earn a $5,000 Fellowship grant and gain access to mentorship, curated professional development, and a community of similarly driven peers. A fellowship helps to improve your professional reputation by providing the financial resources to succeed academically and further distinguishes you as an ideal candidate in the job market. Applying for and participating in a fellowship enables participants to develop both personally and professionally.

You don’t need to have employment secured already – the GIF can even assist.  Visit the link to learn more about the program and to apply. 

The program is managed by Natasha Harris at CTNext.  You can email her at with any questions. Deadline is March 31st.
